For the first Roots@94 of the new year, we are delighted to present an outstanding new trio, featuring two former members of Jez Lowe's Bad Pennies, in Kate Bramley and Simon Haworth, along with East Yorkshire's sweetest songstress Edwina Hayes.

Born out of a musical interest in both British folk and the transatlantic connections to new country and Americana, this trio is fast gaining a reputation across the UK folk scene. Original self-penned songs and close harmonies accompanied by guitars, bass, mandolin and fiddle.

From toe tapping folk to haunting ballads this trio have toured worldwide as independent musicians but obviously have an infectious enjoyment for this new collaboration that is guaranteed to leave audiences with a smile on their faces.

Kate Bramley is a fine singer and instrumentalist, best known as fiddler and vocalist for the North-east’s Jez Lowe & the Bad Pennies and the American band, Sweetgrass. It was while growing up in Cornwall that Kate starting singing around the local folk clubs with her father, and even though she went on to train as Theatre Writer and Director at Hull University she kept open her links to the folk world. In the early 90′s she frequently performed in the USA with the four part a capella group, Northern Harmony, and some of her early songs were published in the book of the same name.

'her earthy and honest approach as vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist gives a fresh outlook on the current crop of light-voiced whimsical female vocalists, with a deeper and more heart-felt style' Little Canaan album review, Amazon.

Edwina Hayes’ beautifully written songs, charming stage presence and voice of an angel have won her a reputation as a true natural talent of gentle folk-Americana. She has played everywhere from Glastonbury Festival to The Royal Albert Hall and opened numerous shows for Jools Holland and Van Morrison. The title track of her album Pour Me A Drink was covered by Nanci Griffith who calls her ‘the sweetest voice in England’ and her cover of the Randy Newman song Feels Like Home was featured in the Cameron Diaz film My Sister’s Keeper and has since had over six million plays on You Tube.

Guitarist and singer Simon Haworth played bass with Jez Lowe & the Bad Pennies from July 1998 until March 2004 touring in Holland, Belgium, Denmark, Australia, USA and Canada as well as extensively across the UK. He also toured as guitar accompanist with top fiddle and Northumbrian Pipes duo, Tom McConville & Pauline Cato before forming a 4 year musical relationship with champion Northumbrian Piper Andy May seeing them record two albums together with Fellside Records. Simon's songwriting is now starting to attract more attention since the release of his second album, Taking Routes.
